Development of Artificial Tissue with a regeneration potential

Study period:1997 - 2002
Research overview:
We are doing research on fundamental processes involved in tissue regeneration and extending our findings to the industrial world and medical institutions. The six areas under study are liver tissue regeneration, hair follicle regeneration, gene therapy using regenerated skin, production of recombinant human collagen, proteomics for tissue regeneration, and observation of environmental contaminants using recombinant frog.
